When you treat your water with a reverse osmosis filter, everything is removed from the water except the H2O. With reverse osmosis, you get water in its purest form.
- Colloidal molecules
- Other impurities, minerals, or contaminants
The Top 5 Myths Surrounding Reverse Osmosis
WaterCure USA wants to address all that you’ve heard about reverse osmosis for your home in the Buffalo, NY area–because we’ve heard it all, too, and most of it simply is not true.
Myth #1 – Reverse Osmosis Causes Unhealthily Acidic Water
This myth has to do with the misconception that our bodies do not regulate pH. It’s a scare sales tactic.
Reverse Osmosis can produce water on the acidic side, however, this is perfectly healthy for your body. And oftentimes this product has a neutral pH. As long as water is not extremely acidic (or alkaline), your stomach automatically adjusts the pH so that your cells can perfectly absorb it.
Myth #2 – Reverse Osmosis is Unnatural Water That Harms the Earth
Reverse osmosis is actually nothing but a very effective filtration process and filtration is a natural process.
The Earth separates millions of gallons of water from contaminants on a regular basis. Then that water falls down in the form of rain. The process of reverse osmosis itself is actually a natural one. It even takes place in our bodies. Scientists who studied it long ago and were able to duplicate it in a way that helps us drink cleaner water.
Myth #3 – We Need the Minerals That Reverse Osmosis Removes
The truth is we get most of our minerals from our food.
What minerals does typical tap water contain? If this were more well known, there would not be any question that it needs to be filtered. Yes, tap water does contain calcium, sodium and magnesium. But these are far easier to consume in your everyday meals.
What water mineral advocates aren’t considering is that tap water can also contain:
Some of these are simply a nuisance to your body while others are toxic.
Myth #4 – Reverse Osmosis Wastes Water
There is waste product from reverse osmosis, but the waste is actually quite minimal in the grand scheme of things.
The wasted water per day is the equivalent of approximately three to four toilet flushes. That wasted water might cause you a mere fifty cents extra a month. The amount of water that is a byproduct is often exaggerated, and don’t believe those “estimates”. This “wastewater” is nothing but what was already in your tap water. Water is perpetually recycled by our county and by nature itself.
Myth #5 – Reverse Osmosis Sucks Out Minerals From Your Body
Seeing that this goes against modern science, it’s hard to take seriously. This is yet another scare tactic from competitors.
It has spread all around the Internet that purified water leaches minerals from your body. Yet when it has been scientifically examined, there is not a shred of evidence that would indicate this.
